Songfacts®:

  • Brantley Gilbert wrote this about his mother. "[It's] just talking about how strong of a woman she is," he told Taste of Country in 2009. "You know she moved out of Indiana, moved down here with my dad, didn't really have any friends, made some friends and just pretty much… My dad and her got divorced recently. And she's been pretty strong through the whole thing. I've kind of been there for her. The roles have kind of switched a little bit. But it just kind of talks about the angel she is."
  • The song is a track from Brantley Gilbert's debut long player, Modern Day Prodigal Son, which peaked at #38 on the Billboard album chart. It also produced the song "My Kinda Party," which was later a hit single for Jason Aldean in late 2010.
